there’s been an update-- they fixed the issue and it now works even when importing a file to the track. woohoo!
The release of the fix is edition 1.1.1 and they updated both demo and in-account bundles.
They fixed it much sooner than I thought.
Biotek2 you’re next!! pew pew!
Over a week ago I got this diagnosis/feedback from their contact staff ::
company X said their plugin was crashing – and part of the reason was due to the way the “daw” is designed pertaining in handling VST specs…
“Mixbus is trying to save the plugin’s state from a thread which is running next to the “main” thread. This only seems to happen while importing MIDI files. This is unexpected and not really what the VST specs intended, but Redux also should not crash down when this happens, so we’ll make sure it can handle this.”
I would like to politely request a probable cause --or whether I should inspect something with a debug version of the daw to see if this is true. Mind me not because I need another plugin that I purchased that needs to be fixed and if this is a problem with the daw the developers here with Ardour/Mixbus need to know. @paul @x42
I wonder if anybody else has come across Linux plugins that fail because of the same probable cause.
I’m just putting this out here to share the information of this plugin update, and I am glad they finally did.
Now when I drag a midi file to the track the daw is no longer crashing. << Difficult to say whether the fault was the daw or plugin, so I sent a bugreport to both places.
But even after getting feedback from the plugin maker, they are saying it is “partially” due to the way Ardour/Mixbus are handling the VST specs…
(I reserve my communication with company X, and I currently am facing a possible similar situtation with Biotek2)
I would like development to look into this claim (it is not me who is saying it), – because company X has a “workaround” to have their plugin to work here – so I am wondering whether there is something Ardour/Mixbus development can take a look of closer inspection on the above provided claim.
